Pasteurised Bottle. A cask version did appear in 2001 @ 3.7% Goliath: The Beer to slay a mighty thirst. A full bodied & robust ruby bitter brewed with Pale & Crystal Malts, with a rich malty taste & a hefy wack of Fuggles & Goldings hops, just the beer to slay that thirst...

MarkoNm (1798) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color, topped with a very small off-white head that quickly dissapears completely. Mild aroma is slightly grassy with some minimal caramel notes and a faint soury feel. Taste is mild, malty and slightly sweet at first, mild bitterness in the finish. Light, almost a bit watery. Drinkable, but nothing special.

lokis333 (110) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 14, 2015
Clear amber color with small off white color foam. Aroma of bit bitter aroma hops and simply beer aroma. Taste, in a way bit watery, and has small hint of aroma hops and has some malt flavour to it too. Over all not the best, nor the worst.

beeebon (322) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
usually available in Home Bargains. Pours brown, quite fizzy and little to no head. Aroma is corn, malt and slightly floral/grassy hops. Taste is medium sweet and lasting bitter. Drinkable and enjoyable but nothing special.

A hazed amber ale with a thin lacing big bubbled off white head. In aroma, sweet corn caramel malt with light grassy hops, honey, oxidized. In mouth, sweet mineral corn syrup and light grassy hops, light oxidation, boring and plain. LCBO Bottle.

"A beer to slay a mighty thirst?" Meh. Standard boring bitter. This round of bottles was likely my last of WQhychwood unless they do something outside the box.

500ml bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small head. Light to medium body with low carbonation. Medium sweetness and low to medium bitterness. Caramel, malts, some brown sugar, yeast and raisin. A refreshing brew.

Erzengel (5801) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
*Old rating. Best before 31 Jul 11. Smooth beer with lots of caramel and a smooth bitterness. Nice, easy to drink and still full flavoured. Malty Ale bitter aftertaste.

Colore ambrato arancio con una cappello di schiuma medio, al naso risalta malto e lievito, il sapore č bilanciato fra dolce e amaro, con un corpo medio

Not the best from Wychwood. Orangey brown colour. Looks like a cheap fizzy soft drink. Head is very poor then quickly fades to nothing. Taste is very malty with a slight hoppiness right at the end. Aftertaste of plant leaves. Not terrible but disappointing for the brewery.
